Basiji, IRGC, You Are Our ISIS! We’ll Give Our Lives For Freedom In Iran!
This clip is a compilation of the continued widespread anti-regime protests in Iran following the death of Jina (Mahsa”) Amini, who died after being beaten and arrested by Iran’s morality police for not wearing her hijab properly. In this clip, protestors can be seen knocking off the turbans of Islamic scholars, clashing with Iranian authorities, chanting “Basiji, IRGC, you are our ISIS!”, burning down communications jamming facilities, and throwing Molotov cocktails at posters of Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and of his predecessor Ruhollah Khomeini.
In one protest, protestors chanted that Khamenei is the “murderer,” who was behind the shooting of IRGC members in the Shiraz shrine of Shahcheragh and that he is a “cripple.” Protesters waved their arms limply, mocking his disabled arm. In another protest, they chanted: “From Zahedan to Tehran, [I’ll give] my life for [freedom in] Iran!” The footage in this clip was posted between October 29 and November 1, 2022, to various Iranian accounts on social media, including those of Iran International Media and of Iranian dissident journalist Masih Alinejad. For more footage from the protests in Iran, see MEMRI TV Clips No. 9891, No. 9837, and No. 9833.
